#3//Electric Episode (Nicole)
Of all the serendipities that university-hood has to offer, here’s something that has caught me with the widest possible grin; a Game of Thrones showing at the Rowdy library.
The TV lounge area at the Rowdy has been my little hobbit-hole for afternoon naps. A podcast episode, or a shoegaze-surf-esque playlist, would often fade off to reënergise me for later lectures. Today however, is different.
“Who are you?”
I gladly put my biphasic sleep schedule away, and a GoT episode has brought together a community of laughter, occasional cursing (what is a GoT episode without casual mind-blowing), and silent fervour.
“A girl has no name.”
Though strangers by nature, GoT easily surfaced our collective excitement and amusement, and it wasn’t long before I realised how much better a replacement of coffee—or napping—this episodic screening has become.
“What do you want me to do with this?”
It hadn’t properly hit me, until now, on how great it is to have the occasional courtyard concerts, sausage sizzles, and clubs fairs to keep community spirits up. Community is infectious, and I would love to take a hand in organising one of these events when the opportunity arises. I will definitely have to look into this after blogging.
“Wear it. Burn it. Do whatever you want.”
But for the time being, it’s back to Game of Thrones.
“My watch is ended.”
